    Below I separately ranked the Republican and Democratic Presidents from best to worse. How would you rank them?

    REPUBLICANS

    1. Bush I
    2. Eisenhower
    3. Ford
    4. Reagan
    5. Nixon
    6. Bush II


    DEMOCRATS

    1. Roosevelt
    2. Kennedy
    3. Clinton
    4. Johnson
    5. Carter
    6. Truman

    For me, Nixon would rank higher if it wasn't for Watergate, and Truman would rank higher if he hadn't nuked Japan.

    No disagreement about Bush at 43, but is Clinton really the best President of all time? Or just from the list given by Patters (I assumed since you counted out 43 you were considering all of them).

    You have fallen off the deep end, no one could ever take you serious again(like they did before).

    It cracks me up that the only thing you equate Clinton to is a blow job. You seem to completely ignore the fact that he singlehandedly destroyed our Military and our intelligence services, and lets be honest...Clinton was responsible for 9-11. If the only bad thing you think he did was lie about a blowjob---you obviously know NOTHING about Clinton.

    He destroyed our military? Wow, I thought they did a spectacular job in Iraqi Freedom (even though they were never meant to be nation builders). What gives?

    They (The Neo Lib Dems) use the Blow Job more than the Neo Cons do.
    Clinton is "Trailer Park White Trash" that happens to be a very slick politician.

    ELOrocks, I thought you were Republican? What about taking responsibility for what happens during your guy's watch. He had 8 months to begin correcting things, but what did he do? Next to nothing. Focused on tax cuts and dropped U.S. involvement in the Middle East. Besides, when Clinton was President there was a Republican Congress. Boy, it's one thing to kiss *****, but you don't have to do it by making up lies about Clinton. Under Clinton we had peace and prosperity. Under Bush we've had 5,000 deaths and counting and huge budget deficits. Those are facts. You don't like them, so you try to rewrite history. Instead, you should try to learn the truth, and try to take responsibility for the mess that you and those like you have brought upon this great country by blindly supporting a corrupt and incompetent president. It's called Personal Responsibility, something that the Republicans like you talk about, but refuse to practice.

    Personal responsibility, what a unique idea, does that mean if you deliberately violate the constitution you should be held responsible, like in impeachment???

    Nah, no one would like that idea, keep blaming side street media, Clinton, Harry Reid, Pelosi, Hillary and whomever it is much easier than taking personal responsibility. All the while Limbaugh, Savage(aka Weiner), Coulter, O'Reilly continue with their half truths and a lot of folks believe them.

    REPUBLICANS

    1. Reagan - greatest
    2. Eisenhower - unappreciated
    3. Bush II
    4. Bush I - inept but had a staff that saved him from himself
    5. Ford - inept
    6. Nixon - worst (I'm emotional over this one)


    DEMOCRATS

    1. Roosevelt - for WWII leadership, developing the A-bomb to end the war
    2. Truman - showed the sack needed to end the war; not a poll driven guy
    3. Kennedy - an emotional choice, probably overrated
    4. Clinton - decent job; horrible human being; excerable staff
    5. Johnson - crook
    6. Carter - inept, incompetent

    Nixon was insane at the end, but he did great things as President like get us out of Nam and form the EPA...Ike was the best and the last to stand up to the MIC.


    DEMOCRATS

    1. Roosevelt
    2. Truman
    3. Kennedy
    4. Carter
    5. Clinton
    6. Johnson

    Johnson was a lying SOB and was responsible for the escalation of Vietnam and the senseless deaths of tens of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese...EVIL PR!CK
    Roosevelt saved the world, although he's responsible for some Horrible domestic programs, he gets a pass.

    Don't Like Massachusetts, Boy? You and Reagan can go f--- yourself! The Commonwealth is the greatest state in the union and second place is WAY out in second. The Revolution began here. The US Constitution was modeled on the Massachusetts version. We have Harvard, MIT, and North Adams State College. We have the Berkshires for awesome hunting, hiking and river sports. We have Cape Cod, the greatest ocean front in North America. We have the greatest history. The people here are the smartest and most educated. We M*******s would kick any invading state's arses. We have Fenway, and best of all...THE PATRIOTS !
    If you haven't already...LEAVE ! If you live in another SH-THOLE state...STAY THERE!

    Other than that, I have no strong opinions on the matter.

    I love this made up revisionist history with Israel and the Palestinians being all lovey dovey. Looks like the old feller watched too many MSM newscasts where fawining over Clinton's legacy to be was job one.

    Actually Pissah, the progress made between the Israelis and Arabs is largely a result of the channels of communication opened up during the Clinton era. Let's not forget that Rabin and Arafat signed the Oslo Peace Accord at the Clinton White House, and that Clinton continued to work closely with the Palestinians and Israelis after that. You might not realize it, but those meetings involved dozens of others from both sides. And Bush was widely criticized during his first months in office when he adopted a hands-off policy toward the Middle East. Given Bush's ineptitude, that turned out to be a good thing for peace (the big surprise being Sharon the peacemaker, but that's another sad story in the history of Israeli-Palestinian peace).

    Its sad to think that Brittany Spears' marriage lasted longer than the Oslo peace accords.
